Synopsis by Betsy Boyd

Five years in the making, the film Defeat into Victory captures the drama of the America's Cup Race. The world's oldest sailing trophy, the America's Cup represents the pinnacle of technological and human ability combined with the high-drama elements of nature which have drawn people to the sea for ages and ages. By way of interview footage, the documentary constructs compelling stories of participants whose lives became inextricably intertwined with the intense match-racing competition. Charlton Heston and Dennis Conner host the film.
